Enough Is Enough (EIE) Biography

Position:
Con to the question "Is the ACLU Good for America?"
Reasoning:

“The ACLU can never accept any form of [Internet] filtering because they believe it’s unconstitutional to keep kids and porn apart. Let’s face it, these are not mainstream views!.. It grieves me that children continue to have their innocence sacrificed on the altar of the ACLU’s version of the First Amendment.”

Donna Rice Hughes, Mar. 22, 2001
